Additional Assessments

Feel like you need more guidance? University Career Center also offers the Strong Interest Inventory , Clifton Strengths (StrengthsFinder) and TypeFocus assessments to students. Come to University Career Center during our drop-in hours to see if additional assessments are right for you.

The Strong Interest Inventory ($30) matches your interests with the interests of people who have been in career fields at least three years and are happy with their work. It takes about 30 minutes to complete this 317-item inventory and results are discussed with a career counselor.

TypeFocus (FREE) assesses your personality type and incorporates it into personalized reports that offer insight into the following topics: career choices; job readiness, interpersonal skills, and learning styles.

Clifton Strengths ($30), formally StrengthsFinder, is based on positive psychology: helping individuals identify, develop, and use their strengths on a regular basis is more beneficial than focusing on overcoming weaknesses. The assessment helps you recognize your unique talents and learn how these talents can be used in your everyday life to maximize potential for personal growth and career satisfaction. Takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

If you are a student in financial need of a sponsorship to take these assessments, they are available on a limited basis.
Please contact Addye Buckley-Burnell at if you would like to be considered for sponsorship.
